President Obama: Stand up to Shell

    Today, Department of the Interior Secretary Ken Salazar granted a preliminary permit that will allow Shell Oil to take initial steps to drill its planned wells in the Chukchi Sea.  This permit has been granted even before Shell’s oil spill response barge has been cleared by the Coast Guard and is still in Bellingham, WA—thousands of miles away from the treacherous Arctic Ocean.  This decision is  like letting a teenage driver go out on their own before they’ve passed their driver’s test and without insurance.

    Will you call President Obama today to tell him not to grant Shell Oil its final permits to drill in America’s Arctic Ocean?
